    Default POP3 Server ip address question

    I'm a bit confused about how Zimbra decides which interfaces the pop3 service listens. I was under the impression that it would listen on all interfaces by default, however my current setup only listens on one, the address of the FQDN.

    Could it be that by entering that domain name in the Servers>POP>Address that I have somenow told it to only listen on the IP returned by the DNS server, since IMAP and all the other external services don't have this problem?

    If you do a: netstat -an | grep 110

    Do you get this:

    tcp        0      0 :::110                      :::*                       LISTEN
    If so, it's on every interface.
    Maybe a routing issue?
    Are you trying to access pop3 on a 2nd NIC or secondary IP Address?

    Thanks, yeah, I did check to see what it was running on and as it turns out it was only listening on the FQDN. Clearing out the entry in the Servers>POP>Address and stopping and restarting tomcat fixed it right up.
